This place has a rich history. Not a lot of the people working there now will know about the old days, but there is where an internet search can help. It is a big place, lots of seating, inside and out. They often have specials and nights with entertainment.

I have visited t'Guilden Vlies on many occasions and it has been great every time. Staff are really nice and helpful, food is great and served quickly, it's convenient and in the summer sitting outside by the canal is fantastic. Top place.

On this Sunday we walked around the central Alkmaar area with many shops and restaurants, passing several that I thought might have some quality fare. Finally we stopped at Gulden Vlies for a dish of fish each. I thought the meal was average at best, not anything special. We were seated next to the canal, perhaps being out front by... More

A very friendly restaurant with excellent food. An interesting place to eat....because it used to be a theatre.

Dined twice as a group on a set price deal from the Amrath hotel. Interesting location - an old theatre, converted some time ago, with some of the trimmings remaining. We were made to feel very much at home. The service was extra friendly and acccomodated the needs of our two vegetarians very flexibly. Though some of us chose the... More

Love the atmosphere in the summer on the terrace on the canal, lovely goat cheese salad, good capuccino and friendly personnel.

Ate here in June 2012, arrived in Alkmaar on the sunday afternoon and had this restaurant recommended by the staff at the Amrath Hotel. Excellent choice, apologies from our waiter Tom that they didn't have an English menu but he patiently went through all the options. Lovely filling Dutch casseroles- chicken for me beef for my better half. Just what... More
